London property: Huge £3.7m Hampstead mansion with peeling walls and an overgrown garden

Most houses need a bit of work doing when you move in – and it’s safe to say this North London mansion is definitely a fixer-upper.

The eight-bed property has gone on sale in beautiful Hampstead, but anyone thinking of purchasing should be prepared to do some serious DIY.

With peeling walls and an overgrown terraced garden, the house is on sale for a whopping £3.7 million.

The massive house clearly needs a lot of work but the tattered wallpaper can’t hide the magnificent bones of the property including a stone columned balcony and chandeliers.

Built on one of North London’s many hills, it commands amazing views over the city and the neighbours’ grand, but not as grand, houses.

One of the first orders of business for anyone buying the mansion will be to get a gardener in.

The back outdoor space, which is arranged over three levels divided by grand stonework, is in desperate need of some tender loving care as weeds and other plants have overtaken the space.

There are two garages on the front of the house giving plenty of space for cars or DIY projects.

In fact space is something this property has more than enough of with eight bedrooms, four bathrooms and three reception rooms.

There appears to be a lot of water damage so anyone hoping to move in will have to address these problems.

The estate agent, Benjamin Stevens, is advertising it as “in need of refurbishment, providing an exciting project with ample potential”.

It’s also short walk from Golders Green station.
